CAE’s Dothan Training Center (DTC)

The CAE Dothan Training Center, which officially opened in March 2017, is a 79,000 square-foot training facility designed to provide comprehensive fixed-wing flight training to the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, and other customers. Located at the Dothan Regional Airport in Dothan, Alabama, CAE and its team of industry partners use CAE’s Dothan Training Center to deliver academic (classroom,) and simulator training, and utilize the adjacent Dothan Regional Airport to deliver Aircraft Flight training.

The primary customer at CAE’s Dothan Training Center is the U.S. Army. Under the Army Fixed-Wing Flight Training program, CAE is responsible for providing the training required to fly the Army’s fleet of more than 350 fixed-wing aircraft. The training is provided to Army rotary-wing aviators transitioning to fly fixed-wing aircraft, and CAE is also supporting the Army’s implementation of a new Initial entry fixed-wing (IEFW) training program so that entry-level Army students can begin their career track to fixed-wing aircraft much sooner.

United States Army Advanced Helicopter Flight Training

CAE USA provides classroom, simulator, and live flying instructor support services for Army aviators training to fly the CH-47 Chinook, UH-60 Black Hawk, and AH-64 Apache helicopters. The flight training support services are provided at the U.S. Army’s Aviation Center of Excellence (USAACE) at Fort Rucker, Alabama. Once U.S Army aviators graduate from the Initial-Entry Rotary-Wing training program, they are assigned to continue training on one of the Army’s frontline combat helicopters or transition to fixed-wing training on the C-12 Huron. CAE USA provides the instructor pilots required to deliver the flight training to approximately 900 Army aviators annually transitioning to the CH-47 Chinook, UH-60 Black Hawk, or AH-64 Apache. CAE USA is also delivering additional flight training support services by providing maintenance examiners and non-rated crewmember flight engineers.

Along with our fixed-wing flight training program at the CAE Dothan Training Center, CAE now plays a pivotal role supporting the training of all Army aviators progressing to their assigned operational aircraft.

Flight School XXI

The U.S. Army’s Flight School XXI (FSXXI) trains approximately 1,500 new student pilots and 1,600 rated Army aviators annually, supporting the Army’s goal to bring individual aviators, crews, and units to a higher level of proficiency. FSXXI graduates aviators with advanced aircraft skills who are ready to perform unit level missions with minimum impact on unit training and operations. In addition, FSXXI supports complex, large-scale Army Aviation training exercises that enable aviators to hone their tactical skills prior to deployment. Through the FSXXI program, the U.S. Army can conduct 38 percent of aviator training for eight percent of its overall training budget. In support of FSXXI and its mission to produce highly proficient aviators CAE has delivered over 30 Advanced Aircraft Virtual Simulators (AAVS), including Reconfigurable Collective Training Devices (RCTDs). We also provide contractor logistics support for these training devices, which to date have a record of 99.7 percent availability. AAVS training devices are FSXXI’s highest fidelity simulators while RCTDs, which can be changed from one helicopter configuration to another within 30 minutes, provide the capability to train multiple crews and leaders in collective exercise scenarios.

U.S. Army’s Future Vertical Lift (FVL) Future Long Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA) and Future Attack Reconnaissance Program (FARA) program

CAE in partnership with Bell Flight have developed a CAE Sprint Virtual Reality (VR) trainer designed to introduce experienced aviators to the 360 Invictus and the V-280 Valor tiltrotor aircraft. The CAE Sprint VR trainer is equipped with physical flight controls - joystick, throttle, and rudder pedals, combined with physical cues boosted by haptics and seat vibration. By leveraging aircraft data directly from Bell’s digital thread, the CAE Sprint immersive virtual environment can be rapidly updated to reflect ongoing aircraft design changes as part of the U.S. Army’s Future Vertical Lift (FVL) Future Long Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA) and Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA) programs.
